** Tolkien took his own jab at it by having the woods literally march over to take Saruman's tower, being living trees known as Ents, and for the Witch King which had a boast to be instead stabbed by a woman.

* ''Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark'': is currently exploiting a longstanding critic tradition of not releasing a review until after opening night by labeling all of their productions as "dress rehearsals" - at full price. In fact, rumor has it that the producers intend to keep it in dress rehearsals its entire run and never formally open it.

* Becomes a plot point in [[Theatre/TheBookOfMormon The Book of Mormon]]: two of the Africans ask Elder Cunningham where in the Book of Mormon it forbids sleeping with a baby or cutting off a woman's clitoris, which, naturally, it doesn't. So Elder Cunningham just makes up something.

* Happens ''twice'' in [[Creator/WilliamShakespeare Shakespeare's]] ''Theatre/{{Macbeth}}''. When Macbeth confronts the witches about their prophecies in Act IV, the witches tell him that he will be safe 'until Great Birnam Wood marches to Dunisnane Hill' and that no man born of a woman can harm him. Macbeth, confident that neither of these events can take place (trees can't march, and all men are born of women) consolidates his rule and drives Malcolm and his forces into Great Birnam Wood. Malcolm's soldiers cut boughs from the trees to use as camouflage in their march on Dunisnane Hill, where Malcolm (who was delivered by Caesarian) kills Macbeth.
